generative modeling for Rhino
i just switched to gh 07.
galapagos seems great!!
i'm working on a weaire phelan structure
this structure uses two types of geometry
Tetrakaidecahedron and Dodecahedron, wich have different kind of faces, hexagons and pentagons (Tetrakaidecahedron) and only pentagons (Dodecahedron)
With galapagos is quite easy to test different types of unions, but i have just been able to connect Tetrakaidecahedron with Tetrakaidecahedron, or Dodecahedron with Dodecahedron.
When i try to use both geometries, galapagos tries to connect hexagons and pentagons, so some unions wont work at all.
I think i have to list out hexagons so they onley connect with hexagons, but i have not been able to do it using galapagos
here you can find what i have at the moment
any advice is appreciated.
i have downloaded structdrawrhino and have a liscence.
i downloaded the zip file and tried running it but for some reason the poly hedras do not follow the curve they form a huge box with 100s of them in it... pls help!!!!!
Thanks for reporting. I think I've broken my polypacking routine some time in the recent past.
I'll try and check it shortly and post a new build ASAP.
that would be such a relief jon...
looking forward for the new build...
hey jon any luck with the polypacking new build?
I'm looking at it some improvements. For the model with this post, it seems the arrangement input has "changed" to boundingbox rather than intersect (I might have changed the order of the enumeration). If you try the attached, see if it works better. If you have other models you want me to look at, either email to me or post and I'm glad to help.
wow jon that's absolutely brilliant!!!!!!
thank a ton!!!!
is there a way that the size of the polyhedron can be resized and if i could change them into ones having all sides as hexagons...
thanks a million and really appreciate the quick response...
hey jon ,
would it be possible if you could get the polypacking working by a day or 2..
sorry for the trouble but in a desperate situation here for the project to move further... we are using a truncated tetrahedron for our system but the one u have currently used should be fine as long as it works... once again sorry for pestering just desperate times...
thanks in advance
